Your guests will sink their teeth into these delicious mini burgers, which are the perfect size for snacking. Here’s how to make easy sliders on mini Cocktail Flatbread. (This recipe can be attributed to Kontos Foods, a Paterson, NJ provider of traditional Mediterranean foods.)

  • Using any preferred ground beef, make patties approximately 2” in diameter. Season and grill to taste.
  • Melt your favorite cheese – American, cheddar or Swiss – on top of burger.
  • Place cooked burger between two pieces of Kontos Foods’ Cocktail Flatbread. (Note: Cut 2” diameter pieces from regular Kontos Flatbread if you don’t have Cocktail Flatbreads.)

“A huge part of the fun of football parties is the food, and these sliders provide a great complement to the usual fare of nachos, veggie dips and other appetizers,” said Steve Kontos, vice president of Kontos Foods. “In a burger, very often the type of bread makes the meal.
